About the Book:
Two sisters. One death. No memories.

Cora should remember every detail about the night her stepsister, Hannah, fell down a flight of stairs to her death, especially since her Cerepin—a sophisticated brain-computer interface—may have recorded each horrifying moment. But when she awakens after that night, her memories gone, Cora is left with only questions—and dread of what the answers might mean.

When a downward spiral of self-destruction forces Cora to work with an AI counselor, she finds an unexpected ally, even as others around her grow increasingly convinced that Hannah’s death was no accident. As Cora’s dark past swirls chaotically with the versions of Hannah’s life and death that her family and friends want to believe, Cora discovers the disturbing depths of what some people may do—including herself.

With her very sanity in question, Cora is forced to face her greatest fear. She will live or die by what she discovers.




About the Author: Sarah Fine is the author of Beneath the Shine and several popular YA series, including Of Metal and Wishes, The Impostor Queen, and Guards of the Shadowlands. Her adult series include Servants of Fate and Reliquary. Sarah’s stories push boundaries and blend genres in unique ways, giving readers mind-twisting tales and vivid, unforgettable characters. And while she promises that she is not psychoanalyzing those around her, she manages to use both her talent as a writer and her experience as a psychologist to great effect.


Sarah has lived on the West Coast and in the Midwest, but she currently calls the East Coast home. She confesses to having the music tastes of an adolescent boy and an adventurous spirit when it comes to food (especially if it’s fried).

Noteworthy experiences while reading this book: Really realizing that I just dont enjoy this authors young adult books was a little surprising. 


Check out author's other books or related books? I think that her Young Adult titles are just not for me. However I will keep reading her New Adult ones. 

Recommend this book? No

Notes and Opinions:  This one had me guessing who I could trust and who I couldn't. But the writing style I just couldn't get into. It seems like this author's young adult books never work out for me but I am happy to say that her New Adult ones do.  The story in this book was ok it did have its flaws but for the most part I think it just wasn't for me. If you are a fan of Sarah Fine then by all means check this one out!
